leads, follows, or just gets out of the way, washington needs real budget reform. we can't continue president obama's pattern of untold trillions of dollars in wasteful government spending. over the past four years president obama has added so much to our national debt that he has already had to increase our nation's debt limit four separate times. this includes the two largest increases in our history. no other president of the united states has needed an increase of over $1 trillion. president obama has asked for that much twice. while he once promised to cut the deficit in half by now, he's done just the opposite. he'hehe's added as much debt in four years as all the previous presidents racked up in our country's first 225 years. president obama has maxed out the national credit card and now he wants a new one. in return, the president isn't willing to offer commitments that he'll try to be more responsible with that next credit card. in fact, under his latest budget, the president wanted to add another $6.4 trillion to our debt over the next five years. that's the wrong directio

at this morning's dish of "scrambled politics." president obama's 23 executive orders on gun control are still being attacked by conservative lawmakers in washington. republican congressman steve stockman of texas has introduced a bill to outlaw the orders as unconstitutional. previously, he threatened to file impeachment proceedings against the president because of the executive orders. beyonce singing the national anthem sparked a lot of reaction over lip syncing. the performance was praised bay reeja franklin who said she did a beautiful job. and aretha who sang at the 2009 inauguration in that hat said she even might prerecord in the future. clint east wad's performance at the republican national convention when he talked to an empty chair, that was a big attention getter. now come word that chair he used is on display in the chair of the rnc chair in the office of the rnc chair. john boehner gave a talk to the republican think-tank on tuesday about the inauguration. he said obama wants to annihilate the republican party and boehner joked about having to calm down legendary college footbal

this block. david ignatius writes this in "the washington post." "an idealist no more. but obama didn't get much for his post-partisan attempts to unite the country other than gratuitous swipes from republican legislators. at times over the past four years, he seemed like the past learn in washington to believe in the center, but no more. now to the politics of the agenda, of the patient, dry-eyed battle to move forward on issues that matter to him: climate change, gay rights, economic justice and the protection of social programs. the country needs a president who can do more than advance incrementally a partisan agenda. an obama who could somehow rally the country to restructure medicare and social security so they can endure through the 21st century might be a great president. but obama moved in another direction on monday." jon meacham, is there a chance that we will see a different focus during the state of the union? >> possibly, but there was a chance -- i agree with david -- i think that the most important line -- actually, it's from one of rattner's charts -- is the falling househo

in washington. one of my colleagues confirmed that speaker boyner told a group of republicans on the house side that president obama's focus is to annihilate the republican party. is that the collective viewpoint here in the republicans in the senate or not? >> greta, i've seen a number of presidents in their second terms, i've seen president reagan and president clinton in their second term and president bush, jr. in his second term and there's always an outreach starting with the inauguration. look, we've got to work together. obviously, it was a very confrontational speech that the president gave that i think would have been more appropriate if he feels that way at the state of union as opposed to an inaugural speech. i think you can lend credence to the belief that the president of the united states want to regain a majority in the house of representatives and in order to achieve that he has to split the republican party, particularly in the house and so i regret that i didn't hear one word from the president about it's time we all sat down and worked together and addressed these issues tha

. there's no doubt that washington is living outside its means. the federal debt has skyrocketed to a record $16.5 trillion. president obama's first term added almost $6 trillion to that total and there's no way to -- reason to believe that we've done anything to slow down that spending and debt path that we've been on. meanwhile, it's been 1,360 days since the majority in the senate and the senate itself managed to pass a budget. in fact, i think during that 1,316 days, we haven't even had the budget committee report a budget out for the senate to vote on. vice president biden last summer said, show me your budget and i'll tell you what you value. well, let's find out what we value. let's find out what the majority in the senate values. and when the president -- when the vice president talked about showing the budget, he was talking about the republican budget because there actually was one. the republican house had passed a budget. in fact, mr. president, the -- the senate and the house both passed a budget every single year from the passage of the budget control act in the mid
control and centralized power here in washington. on monday we saw a president and a party that appear to have shifted in reverse and jammed on the gas. for democrats in the obama age, the era of big government being over is officially over. and anybody disagrees with their approach isn't just wrong. they are not just standing in the way of progress, that they are malevolent. there are the bad guys. they're the ones who want to take food away from children. they want the old and the infirm to suffer. they want to choose between caring for the people who built this country and as the president put it on monday and investing in those who will build our future. i don't know if the president dies all this stuff. i don't know if he believes it's all in the caricatured. i certainly hope not. but one thing i do know is that questioning the intention of one's political opponents makes it hard to get anything done in a representative democracy or treat name-calling as reasoned debate. the president won the election. congratulated him on his victory. it's his prerogative to lay out an agenda and
